What do you mean ‘work’ @beesaurus? in any case, yeah Kegel exercises do help restore muscle tone in the pelvis/vagina after childbirth. though I’ve heard that doing also helps your own awareness of your body so it can improve sensations during sex too – so not just for new mothers!
Welcome @beesaurus! 🙂 Kegels are a great way to strengthen the muscles around your bladder, vagina or penis & back passage. And those muscles are important! They help control your wee & poo & also play a big part in sexual sensation. So a strong pelvic floor means no leaks & better sex! What’s not to like!
Want to make sure you’re doing it right? check out this guide & read through the thread @NickiPower posted too! Lots of good info!
Hi @beesaurus, welcome to Play Safe. *waves* What a great question! Have you done kegel exercises a lot in the past, is that why you ask? For me, I usually forget to remember to do them 😀 Hope the links above were helpful. Let us know how you’re going with your exercises, or even if you’ve never done them.
@tea @peachy haha I think butt clenching is part of it but I think to properly train the pelvic floor muscles they say to imagine yourself peeing and then trying to stop mid-stream. thats the muscle you need to be flexing/working too. the butt muscles usually fire at the same time when you do that, but its possible to do the butt clenching without the pelvic floor ones. make sure you’re getting a well rounded work out 😀
